Have you ever wished to be a prince? Or to be magical? Or to take part in saving one of the most magnificent beasts of all time? In Donna Cook’s Gift of the Phoenix, one has the chance to experience all of that. As an avid reader of fantasy, I often encounter boring or overused plotlines---this was neither! With a fresh new take on fantasy adventure, Cook constructs an enchanting world of magic, kingdoms, rebirth, and death. Her masterful portrayal of characters leaves one feeling as if the characters are close friends, and one quickly devours the pages to know what lies in store. Each character has his own unique distinctions that any person can relate to. Even among the three main protagonists, one can choose to focus their attention on Corren, the wizard, Marcellus, the prince, or Nicolai, the young farmer. The masterful language and writing eases one through the story, and the dialogue never feels forced. The plot is quick to hold one’s attention as the novel opens with Nashua and an ancient ritual gone wrong. Then, one is introduced to the main characters and whisked away into a fantasy adventure like no other. Love, hate, fear, uncertainty, and more fill each chapter, and one will never be bored! I simply cannot wait to read more of Donna Cook’s work!

Of prancing poetry."
Donna Cook grabs you by the scruff of you neck, plants
you on your steed, and tears away. Hang on and enjoy
the ride! It is a trip well worth taking.
I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful romp by a new author,
and highly recommend it. It is a quick read and well crafted.
I will read it again and look forward to more of her work.
